I'll go ahead and get the flame-war rolling...

In addition to RedHat for enterprise environments, I've used debian
(stable/main) on and off personally for close to a decade. Have to
give credit to Jason at; he's responsible for introducing me
to dwm, which ultimately lead to my freedom (from Windows). Gnome and
KDE at the time just seemed like a step in the wrong direction (even
from Windows), so I'm about as happy as a pig in sh-t. If you consider
yourself unhappy now, try firing up Windows and see how "happy" that
makes you. The thought of using Windows again just reinforces my
appreciation for the debian/dwm setup I'm using. Usually puts a big
grin on my face. Best of luck.
